In the pages of our catalog, you’ve probably noticed the tips that we include for design inspiration. From the products we sell to the tips we add to our catalog, our goal is to help you decorate your home inside and out to reflect your unique personality! Today, we thought we’d round up all the fun tips from our Spring 2015 catalog.

We designed this outdoor wall workstation so you can create storage anywhere in your outdoor space — from a bar to a potting bench! It’s made of weather friendly, all-natural teak so it ages well, and also looks lovely! Plus, slats offer drainage for spills and moisture.
